From White Passivity to Racial Justice Activism
This book is about how white people can move from passivity to action in response to racism in America. This chapter argues that further progress in racial justice depends on many more white Americans coming to an understanding of racism and developing a commitment to take positive action. Most whites do not want to keep people of color down; they do not work intentionally to do so. Rather, they remain passive or apathetic in the face of continued racial inequality in the United States. The discussion stresses the difficult circumstances of poor African Americans. Racism has historically been so intertwined with economic exploitation that it has never made sense to dichotomize the two.
